[Paschetto, Paul] The Twenty-third Psalm

Rome: Privately Printed, 1927.

First edition thus. Unpaginated. Nine original woodcut illustrations by Paulo Paschetto tipped in... (Folio) 39x33.5 cm (15ºx13º") original full pictorial vellum with image of the Christ carrying a lamb upon his shoulders. No. 5 of 100 copies. Signed by the author at the limitation statement; each plates with the artist's penciled monogram and date. Paolo Paschetto (1885-1963) was a devout Christian who apparently regarded his iconographic art as a calling or avocation as much as a profession. He served as a professor at the Royal Academy of Art in Rome. He was known in Italy as one of the foremost black-and-white artists and illustrators. Light wear; very good.
